real actual title: how to hide a stray resurrected superhero from your
summary: Tim is about 95% sure the boy he found on the streets and brought home is a zombie Jason Todd. He really hopes Mrs Mac doesn’t open the closet door before Mr Wayne phones him back.
a/n: um yeah some crappy AU where Tim never became Robin after Jason died (not for lack of trying—details in fic) that makes no sense timeline-wise, like i don’t think this could ever happen but shhhh AU c:
"First I had to find out you died from a newspaper article.Then, I found out you were alive from the little demon bratt. And now you’ve gone all anti-hero vigilante and I had to find THAT out from Ivy. Is there ANYTHING you’d like to tell me yourself?"
"….uh…..you’re really hot when you’re angry?"
"I’m going to punch you in the throat."
AU where Tim became Catwoman’s partner and was friends with Jason until the jerk up and died on him. In Jason’s defense, he did try to find Tim after he came down from the crazy, but he was looking for a girl named Catlass and not a boy named Stray.
Posting this again, because too many people are using the word “masculine” to describe women based on their clothes.
Mulan’s first word on OUaT is “woman”. I think it’s very dismissive to take that away from her, just because she doesn’t fit into the heteronormative definition of “feminine”. Is that how you honor someone for serving their people?
This reminds me of Eddie Izzard. A couple of people have said stuff like “But you are a transsexual, right? You wear women’s dresses?”
And Eddie just goes “No, they’re not women’s dresses, they’re my dresses. I’ve bought them, I wear them. When a woman wears a man’s trousers you don’t say she’s crossdressing, do you? She’s just wearing trousers.”
A proposed new (non-binary inclusive) trans* symbol.
Not gonna lie, I got a little giddy when I saw it.
I really like it. Aw man.
OH MAN HOW COOL IS THIS
Every time I see this post on my dash, I am just blown away with the levels of meaning it has. Because the asterisk has often been used as an inclusive signifier for the suffix “trans,” and the symbol is obviously referencing that.
But if you look closely, the asterisk attached to the circle contains both the female and male (Venus and Mars) symbols.
And if you know much about the meanings of astrology symbols, you could even argue that there’s a third glyph in there. Because male/Mars is drive (arrow) over spirit (circle), and female/Venus is spirit (circle) over matter (cross). And when you’ve used those, you’re left with what could be interpreted as mind (crescent) over spirit (circle). And I really think it would be quite useful for anyone who doesn’t fit in the gender binary.
So yes. All the awards to the creator!
So one of my favorite things about WALL-E is how, even though it takes place in a future where humans have screwed up the Earth big-time, and we’re living in this impersonal complacency dystopia and everything, all the human characters (or at least the ones we meet at the time of the narrative) are good people.
And like, in that vein, I love Captain McCrea’s arc—his sense of wonder at discovering the vast, complicated beauty of our Earth; his shift, when his romantic notions are shattered, not to despair but to heroism; the way he takes on the true meaning of what has been a cushy figurehead position, and becomes a real decision-maker and leader.
But another thing that always really catches my attention is the little scenes when WALL-E meets John and Mary. WALL-E doesn’t look or act like the Axiom robots, so they both react to him with some confusion—but at the same time, they automatically return his politeness. Just by the simple act of exchanging names, they accept WALL-E’s invitation to engage with him, and they begin to count him as a friend. John and Mary don’t do anything big to impact the main conflict or anything. But it means a lot that when their routines are interrupted by a strange robot, their first impulse isn’t to be annoyed or suspicious, but to be friendly and nice without a second thought.
And these positive qualities aren’t limited to the humans that have been directly touched by WALL-E’s eccentricity. When the deck tilts in the climactic scene, everyone reaches out and tries to help each other. Everyone cheers for the captain when he stands up to AUTO; everyone feels for WALL-E and EVE in their moment of tragedy. And everyone seems excited and hopeful about the prospect of returning to Earth and starting something new.
I just really love the optimism in this movie. I love how the story posits that being kind and caring and curious and brave really is the natural state of humanity, and it’s just that sometimes we need a little push to remind us of that.
This analysis actually made me cry almost as much as the movie.
Also robots are so clearly part of their everyday background that they don’t even pay attention to or think about, but when one of them steps up they just kind of go with it and it’s lovely.
Also tumblr kept trying to make me tag this as wall.
It was a conscious effort to have a diverse cast just to represent our world. I don’t think it’s realistic for the whole cast to be white. I also think when you are developing a show and casting it mostly Caucasian and you get down to the bad guy and the network is like, “You have to have some diversity,” then all of the sudden…that’s why the person of color is always killed. And because we have so much diversity in our cast and we’ve had the freedom to cast our villains and victims however we want, so we can kill as many white people as we want.
Remember when Jon Lewis wrote a good Steph!Robin story 2 years before the shitty War Games?
Alternate universe where Steph is Robin, Tim is a normal kid who stalks Steph’s and Bruce’s secret identities (and is vaguely hinted to be Spoiler), and Batman isn’t a douche.
Remember that time that Steph as Robin wasn’t treated like a joke/plot point for Bruce’s manlove for small dark haired blue eyed boys he fights crime with?
